When you have missing or damaged teeth, it’s hard to keep your mouth healthy. More importantly, when you have missing teeth, your remaining teeth can become loose, which may lead to additional tooth loss. Crowns and bridges are often a solution that can fill the gaps and restore your mouth back to a healthy state.
A crown is an artificial replacement that fits over the remaining part of a tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. A crown is sometimes known as “cap”.
A bridge is a fixed dental replacement used to replace a missing tooth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth.
Types of bridges may vary, depending upon how they are made and the way they support the adjacent teeth.
A bridge is made by reducing the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth. A bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.
